Your private old Edinburgh walking tour

Sometimes you want to enjoy a new place without having to worry about reading maps, asking for directions or getting lost.  Instead, you want to see the best views, explore the hidden side-streets and get a local's perspective on their city.  If that's what you seek, then we would suggest that our bespoke half and full-day walks are our best Edinburgh tours for you!

Robert, our award-winning local Edinburgh tour guide, can meet you at your hotel and take you around Edinburgh's Old and New Towns.  These contrasting places form Edinburgh's UNESCO World Heritage Site.  For example, we could take you to the Dean Village, Calton Hill, the Royal Mile...it's YOUR walking tour and YOUR choice of route!

This tour gives you control of when you'd like the tour to start and where you'd like your tour to start.  If you are based in a city-centre hotel or want to meet at a restaurant, bar or attraction, then that is what we will do.  We can also arrange to finish the tour at a suitable location.  These options give you the ultimate personalised 'Historic Edinburgh Tours' experience!
